I still think Miazga, whom you all just call "passionate", will be a volcano emotional liability (errors in game) when things get very stressful in knockout rounds.

I have said before about this team WC champion or bust!! That's the mentality we should have from now on including at the senior level. The players should feel the same way also. For teams like Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Mexico, Nigeria etc.. That's their mentality going into this type's of tournament anything less than a championship will be a failure for them in terms of country's accomplishments.

Robben's made a damn fine career out of his left foot.


RvP

Blast from the past: Hristo Stoichkov.

Yes winning the tournament absolutely should be our "mentality." However, it should absolutely NOT be the criteria by which success and/or progress is evaluated.

Anyone else think, besides me, that Rubio Rubin's game is very similar to Luis Suarez?

Against Myanmar in the second half he went at his defender outside the 18 yard box and did a move where he feinted one way and cut the ball back the other way, and I was like holy crap that is exactly how Luis Suarez sets up defenders. The only thing missing was Rubin ruthlessly dispatching the Shot like Suarez would have done.

Rubin has the shifty dribbling ability and tenacious attitude. Rubin needs to get more lethal in front of goal, but in a couple of years he could be lighting Europe a light.

I always have that mentality for the senior level to win it all. Shit, I haven't missed a game since 2009. Taking this friday off!

This U-20 cycle is very talented but they could've been more dangerous with a healthy Maki Tall, Novakovich and an eligible Green.

Even more deadly with Devante Parker.

Desevio Payne was such a big coup!

He doesn't have the overall game that Suarez has but he's the closest thing we have to him.

I love how hyped up we all are over these current U20 players and it's only going to get better! Christian Pulisic who isn't old enough for this current group may become our greatest midfielder ever! I hate saying this but the future is bright. Looking forward to the progress we make as a soccer nation over the next 2-4 years.

It would be interesting to compare Rubin to the young Suarez when he played in Holland as far as finishing. They have the same relentless tenacity. Suarez is a lethal assassin...his finishing ability is at the highest level on the planet. Rubin has plenty of time to sharpen his finishing...he's only 19, think of what he's going look like in 5 years...could be scary good.

Maybe Kun Aguero in the same conversation as a comparator for Rubin.

After review, FIFA's Technical Study Group has credited BJIV with the U-20 MNT's first goal in the 4-0 win over NZ.

Stoichkov was class even at the end of his career with Chicago.

Jamieson should get credit for that goal, good control and composed finish. Other iterations of USA players hack and blast at that.
